Does anyone have experience with the Blackbox window manager?I've read a few 
articles about it. It's very minimalist but you can use added packages to 
customise it to your own liking.I heard about one feature called the slit.I 
also notice that it is available using kynaptic along with several other 
packages BB and ?.but not in synaptic.
	I put the whole system menu as a widget on the panel of Gnome but some of 
that stuff needs to be run by root.I tried gksudo to run commands,  for 
kynaptic .Gksudo kynaptic but it didn't bring up the password box like it 
does if you use it like gksudo/opt/nzclient/runclient.sh.I actually like 
Gnome now . At first I didn't use it much because it seemed funkier like FC1
(Fedora Core 1).Once you start a browser it doesn't make a big difference.
	I also tried the dash shell .There are about 1000 lines of man dash. So I 
ended up using only cat,cd,ls,pwd,and vi.Is there a history key like up arrow 
for repeating your commands? I really don't get the complex interactive usage 
that the man pages discuss.But I found some interesting files just the same 
like kernel.log for one plus some other ones concerning cups and foomatic.I 
even found a directory called /proc/self/root/var/log.
